Album Notes
Bellissimonde presents electric world music and complex rhythms. It's music to dance to: belly dance, folk dance, fire dance, and rituals.... There's something for everyone.

The Bellissimonde CD includes pieces from Algeria, Armenia, Persia, Turkey, and Spain.

* Monty "The Drummer" Cowles plays a whole lotta percussion. Ancient hand drums –- doumbec, tar, riqq and bendir -- complement the drum kit.
* Sylvia Hackathorn wails on electric guitar, bouzouki, and mandolin, varied with special effects pedals, and embellished by haunting airs on the Indian flute.
* Patricia Scott adds castanets, Turkish spoons, zils and qaraqsh from North Africa.

Take this incredible performance home with you.

If you want passion, mystery, exotic rhythms...
If you want whimsy, majesty, mischief...
You want Bellissimonde:
The electric best of all possible worlds!

Great recording of great musicians! It sounds like they are in your living room, and a Must for not only tribal dancers, but anyone who enjoys eastern or quasi-historic sounds. I would highly recommend this cd to belly dancers of all sorts, SCA people, alternative people of all types and shapes and even to my dog (who does have a sense of rhythm by the way). I mean, a fuzzbox version of 'Saltarello'? I esk ya, how fab is that? It's not all belly dance material, but it Is all terrific.
